Dear Kathy and heart goes out to both of you. I was Sue's first friend at the Johnston Stop and Shop when she moved here from Connecticut. Sue was very quiet and shy but I made sure to welcome her and we became very good friends. We shared fun times, sad times, long talks and gave each other the security knowing we'd always 'be there ' for each other......and we were.. l will always treasure her gift of true friendship......and keep her in my thoughts. I will miss you Sue, my dear friend and will think of you always Hey, send me a sign from Heaven once in a while !!!!! Love, Nancy ......till we meet again.
